Yeah, it’s sad. I know Kei’s tennis career is way too lucrative (in terms of endorsements in Japan) to quit just yet. His sponsors don’t seem to be bothered that his performance has generally stagnated (he hasn’t made another GS final), as he’s still one of Japan’s biggest athletes.

 

And hey, he’s become a top 10 player again, which is better than 99 percent of players on the tour. He just can’t get past a Grand Slam QF. Nice work if you can get it when folks like Feliciano Lopez and Kohlschreiber and Simon are all still playing with not much to show for it in terms of big trophies or deep runs in majors so...

 

He just needs to be careful, as life is more than tennis, and he doesn’t want to live with debilitating pain for the rest of his life.

IT'S officially too hot to play. 
The tournament referee Wayne McKewen has officially deemed that the head stress scale has reached 5.0, meaning play on outside courts is suspended and the roof of Rod Laver Arena is to be closed. 

Petra Kvitova and Danielle Collins are waiting in the shade until the roof is fully closed, which should only take a few minutes. 

All play on outside courts has been stopped. 

Gee reading the updates, someone is not happy at all.

 

Collins fumes as roof closed due to heat

The heat stress reading has hit 5! That's a suspension of play on all outside courts, and it will lead to the roof being closed on Rod Laver Arena.

A smiles comes over the face of Petra Kvitova, because this will certainly advantage her now. Collins was thriving in the heat, and she's probably the only person at Rod Laver Arena who not happy about that one.

There's a huge cheer from the crowd, but Collins

John McEnroe made a comment on how he was too short for tennis.  He looks just like Stefanos minus the long hair and beard/mustache...LOL

 

I wonder what kind of game he has....

Gotta love the screaming going on between Petra and Collins. 

Carlos Ramos is at it again and now with Collins....LOL

Naomi is the first woman to back up her maiden GS title with a final in the next Slam since Jennifer Capriati won the Australian and then the French in 2001.

 

She’s no flash in the pan.

 

She’s the youngest to make back-to-back finals since 20-year-old Ana Ivanovic made the Aussie Open final in 2008 (losing to Sharapova) and then won the French.
